ATF has received requests to exempt certain projectiles from regulation as "armor piercing ammunition".
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has received requests to exempt certain projectiles from regulation as "armor piercing ammunition" under 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(B)(ii) of the Gun Control Act of 1968. In this regard, ATF is seeking public comments on specific projectiles or projectile cores which may be used in a handgun and which are constructed entirely from one or a combination of tungsten, alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium, copper, or depleted uranium, and whether these projectiles or projectile cores pose a threat to public safety and law enforcement, or are, "primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes" and therefore may be exempted from classification as "armor piercing ammunition."

Well, it seems more like they are asking for public opinion on the matter. To see what kinds of ammo people are using and if their is a public consensus on what should be allowed. I don't think that's such a bad idea, they are supposed to work for the public after all...

In short "we dont know how the hell to apply or enforce this poorly crafted piece of legislative # so will you guys help us out? Or at least voice a popular enough opinion that mob rule approval will make up for us doing something incredibly stupid?"
